A POEM ...written by Kitty O'Meara


And people stayed at home

And read books

And listened

And they rested

And did exercises

And made art and played.

And learned new ways of being

And stopped and listened deeper.

Someone meditated, someone prayed

Someone danced

Someone met their shadow.

And people began to think differently

And people healed.

And in the absence of people who

Lived in ignorant ways

Dangerous, meaningless and heartless,

Even the earth began to heal.

And when the danger ended and

People found each other

They grieved for the dead

And they made new choices

And dreamed of new visions

And created new ways of life

And healed the earth completely.

Just as they were healed themselves.
